STALKER ALERT! Ha Jin did not give much thoughts in when a stalker starts to strike as she believe is just some sasaeng fan (사생팬 – obessive fan who stalks and invade privacy of the celebrity). When Jeong Hoon found out, the series of act trigger the memory where Seo Yeon was kidnap by a man and was killed after.
Things that the stalker did went overboard and start to scare her. Slowly, Jeong Hoon starts to develop feelings for her and also mapped out why she is so forgetful. The condition she has is not by choice but losing her best friend who happens to be his first love, Seo Yeon.

Started real dating
The miracle hospital rooftop seal the deal, Jeong Hoon and Ha Jin is officially dating. Even though Jeong Hoon knew that Ha Jin will be hurt once she remembers Seo Yeon, but he want to brace it through with her and protect her.

This is definitely not a surprise but the process of how and what triggers her to remember is a journey. Ha Jin fell back into her off-form and depressed state, felt sorry for forgetting her best friend and blame herself for the misfortune that landed on her.
From here to here, you will have to watch it yourself.
